keilar's with us at the white house. you were at the president's campaign headquarters. you did excellent job covering what was going on last night. at what point did they finally realize this was going to be an excellent night for the president? >> reporter: you know, they seemed pretty confident early on. they seemed relaxed. and they seemed calm. but obviously, i think, they were waiting ultimately until ohio, until they could really breathe a sigh of relief because there were obviously a lot of concerns about the recounts. but i think they were looking and seeing the margins that they were winning in some of those battleground states. and they felt like it was going to be a good night for them. remember, we heard even days before and yes, it was spin, but it turned out to be true from some of the president's top campaign advisors -- pardon the wind here at the white house -- they thought they were going to win the electoral vote and the popular vote and there was some folks wondering about that. but i also think, wolf, now you're moving on very much to reality. and that's so much what
